Endiama seeks investors for 127 diamond prospecting projects

10 february 2016
Angolan state diamond company, Endiama said it has 127 diamond prospecting projects across the country, which investors can take advantage of.
It said seven were in Zaire, 24 in Lunda Norte, 38 in Lunda Sul/Moxico, 19 in Malange/Cuanza Sul, 20 in Bie, 16 in Huila/Cuando Cubango, and three in Namibe/Cunene.
Endiama also said that diamond exploration was also earmarked for both traditional and non- traditional diamond mining areas.
The company indicated last year that 108 diamond projects were being negotiated.
Endiama said it was necessary to invest in the country’s diamond sector as it had “political, economic and social stability”, “high qulity diamonds with tremendous growth potential kimberlite and alluvial [deposits]”.
Angola was home to about 1000 kimberlite formations and only 195 prospecting permits had been granted.
Currently only 0.66 square km of Catoca pipe in Lunda Sul was being commercially explored, representing about 80 percent of the country’s official production.
Russian diamond giant Alrosa and Endiama had shares in Catoca together with other mining companies.
